You’ve probably heard all of the hype and chatter about the HydraFacial, but do you know WHY everyone’s talking about them? Let’s get educated! A HydraFacial is a 6 step medical grade facial! HydraFacial is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. It is PERFECT for all skin types, yes, ALL OF THEM! The HydraFacial works magic, it conquers fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, elasticity and firmness, texture, brown spots, oily and congested skin and enlarged pores. As if it doesn’t sound appealing enough, you can add in boosts, which we will get to in a bit!
| The Treatment |
The HydraFacial machines tip, “Vortex Technology” is far ahead of anything else when it comes to, well, just about anything facial related! The “vortex” is simply a strongly circulating liquid that when applied to the skin, easily extricates and eliminates a variety of blemishes including blackheads, sebum, and whiteheads for painless and instantaneous extractions. Think about, a tornado for your face - they leave nothing in their tracks! In this cleansing step Activ-4™ serum is comprised of lactic and glycolic acid to cleanse and dislodge the gunk inside the pores, algae extract to soothe and hydrate, and yeast extract to smooth fine lines and firm the skin.
After the skin is exfoliated and cleaned, the teal tip comes into action, infusing the skin with the Glysal™ serum, a mix of salicylic and glycolic acid to help loosen the deeper dirt, dead skin and sebum from the pores. Once we’ve cleared your skin pretty well, we move into the Beta-HD serum, which has salicylic acid to further soften and exfoliate your skin while hydrating as well.
Exfoliating the skin is essential in maintaining its health. The HydraFacial utilizes abrasive, multiple edges in order to exfoliate the skin thoroughly many times over to achieve better skin resurfacing minus the irritation, discomfort or redness of other leading dermabrasion procedures such as peels, dermaplaning, skin resurfacing and microdermabrasions.
Vortex-fusion is the final step, when the pores are all clean, and the clear tip comes out to infuse the skin with an antioxidant serum called Antiox-6. Antiox-6 is a mix of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins A & E, White Tea Extract, Horse Chestnut Extract, Rosemary Extract that help to plump up your skin and protect it from free radicals at the same time.
